I'm not being (smart here)...but we were too poor for them.

That was only something kids with rich parents had, and didn't see to many braces at all.Must admit, I use to think those kids were very brave....first time I ever saw them!
It looked so painful, that I didn't want them! I know far better now of course.
No I never had dental braces
Yes, for four years. It used to be so tough from eating to speaking to smiling. But the way it changed my looks and ease with which I can clean my teeth made it all worth while.
I had braces when I was about 13 years.
I had braces, twin block plates and retainers - the whole lot! They were very unpleasant, made even more so by the fact orthodontists can't seem to be nice (or at least mine wasn't). Not many people know this, but you can actually get braces in gold look instead of silver for not much more money (I negotiated a couple years' worth of Christmas and birthday presents foregone so that I could get the gold ones). There's not much point to them except that they aren't quite as obvious - of course, this was before Invisalign and other new things that are even less obvious. But it made me feel a little better about it, given I was already the school nerd. Nothing will compare to that feeling when you finally get them off though!
I couldn't agree more Kerri - my orthodontist was pure evil. He seemed to enjoy inflicting pain. I still believe this all these years later. And yes, the joy of having them removed is unbelievable.

No. I had a plate that the orthodontist would expand at weekly intervals for me to wear to sleep. I refused to have 4 teeth removed to have braces, being the stubborn teenager I was, so have pretty good teeth, but unfortunately not as good as they could have been. Oh well!
No I didn't need them which was really fortunate because my family would not have been able to afford them.
No, but my daughter did when young.
Yes. I was born sucking my thumb (literally!), and continued to do so for years. This pulled my front teeth forward - not a good look! Once I stopped (and it took breaking my arm in a car accident so that I was in plaster for a couple of months) Mum saved and saved and finally took me off to the orthodontist. I had to have 4 healthy teeth removed to make room for my front teeth to come back - what a horrible experience that was. I hated them at the time, but am now extremely grateful that I was able to get my teeth fixed.
